The European Circular Economy Stakeholder Conference will take place on 15 and 16 April 2024 in Brussels - with a twist!
Europe's top circular economy conference will be joining forces with the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF). Policy makers, industry leaders, academics and activists from all around the world will come to Brussels to turn circular visions into actions, making the most of this unique platform for fostering partnerships and reinforcing the role of the circular economy as a driver of sustainable development.
The Circularity Gap Report Munich is the first study measuring the Circularity Gap of a city. It assesses the city’s material consumption, material cycling, consumption-based carbon footprint and other indicators. It uses a consumption-based carbon accounting approach for emissions from goods and services consumed by residents of a locality. On average, each Munich resident consumes 32 tonnes of virgin materials annually.
The study acknowledges the successes of Munich’s circular economy strategy with initiatives like investment in public transport, community gardens and remanufacturing activities, but calls for bolder action to accelerate the circular transition
Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is one of the key policies requiring EU Member States to organise separate collection of textile waste as of 2025. EPR schemes are an important tool for reducing the environmental impact of textiles, promoting circularity and contributing to more efficient end-of-life management.
Join the hybrid event on EPR for circularity: towards a more sustainable EU textile sector on
29 November from 15:00 to 17:30 CET at the European Parliament or online.
CircularPSP brings together seven procurers from seven countries to jointly accelerate the digital transition towards a circular economy. Its focus is pre-commercial procurement (PCP).
